It’s stressful, but the work is super interesting - you work with big companies helping them think through questions they couldn’t answer themselves. Pay is pretty nice too

I’m curious as well. I’ve heard work is fairly similar between MBB and T2, so is the prestige really worth going to MBB? Or is prestige only something our consulting egos care about? 😁

Yes if comparing with T2. Previously worked at a T2.

It also feels like a growth environment. MBB have outgrown T2 firms by 2-3x for 20 years. Some like Kearney/RB have registered almost zero growth.

Outside of IB/PE and big law there’s few other careers with a clear path to big comp.

Yes

Leadership team comp: 🤑

Hi, I am currently interviewing for the abuse analyst role in a Trust and Safety team at Google. I have had 3 rounds done and a 4th (RRK) is scheduled.

I have been conveyed though that my feedback so far, is pretty neutral / avg hence a 4th round which will be entirely RRK. So, my question to y'all: For an analyst role, what's the best way to prep for RRK? Is live coding in SQL asked? Thanks!
